Mental oral starter
Focus : multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100
When we multiply by 10 we are making the number 10 times bigger so all the digits move one place to the left ; if we multiply by 100 all the digits move 2 places to the left. When we divide by 10 and 100 all the digits move one place and two places to the right respectively.
Have a go a practising x 10 and 100
This week the focus for both Year 3 and 2 is Statistics. We are going to start the week by recapping why and how we use tally charts. Tally charts are used to collect data quickly and efficiently. Filling in a chart with marks representing numbers is faster than writing out words or figures and the data is collected into sub-groups immediately, making it easy to analyse.
Year 3 and 2 watch the ppt with Mrs Wallbank on class dojo.
Your task today is to create your own tally chart of your choice. For example:count how many different species of birds can you see in your garden? ; how many different coloured crayons do you have at home?; How many different colours of socks have you? Look out the window and count the number of cars that pass outside your house that are different colours. The topics could be endless.
Keep the tally chart safe as you will need it for our work towards the end of the week.

L.O: I can re-tell a story using the key events
Read the local story called the Pedlar of Swaffham. Listen to Miss Behan reading the story and read along on the text at the same time.
Vocab check – use a dictionary or ask an adult to find out what these words mean. Write the definitions in your book
-tramped and trudged
What are the key events of the story? Draw yourself a story map (some easy pictures to remind yourself of what happens in the story) and have a go at retelling the story to someone at home from the pictures. Send us a picture of your story map and we’d love to see videos of you retelling it on class dojo too. You can shorten the story into your own words. It’s about WHAT happens, not using the exact same words as Miss Behan read.
L.O: I can answer questions about a text
These questions are about pages 1 to 3 of the story. All of the answers are in the text so you need to look carefully. Skim and scan to find the right bit of the text with the answer
Download the questions and answer them.
